Classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These are the closest that I get to a classic oatmeal raisin cookie. Most of the time, I like to play around with the ingredients. This time, I only added in one nontraditional ingredient. If you don’t like wheat germ, you can leave it out (but it’s highly recommend that you keep it in!) These cookies last for a while, so they are great for sending in the mail!

  1. Love your spices! I usually just add cinnamon, but I love the idea of allspice and nutmeg. I like wheat germ, so in that shall go, also. Thanks for the new ideas.

    • Not only does wheat germ add a nice subtle flavor, but it also makes the cookies a bit healthier! Now your cookies have a small helping of folic acid, vitamin E, thiamin, and magnesium!
